Best Furniture(Kitchen/Bathroom/Shelving) Cabinet plugin?

Postby everyellowful » Wed May 17, 2017 1:56 am

Hi all, I would love to hear some advises from you all, who likely have much more experience on plugins. I've been shopping around recently for the best plugin(for interior furniture including Kitchen cabinet/Bathroom cabinet/Shelving etc) It is for a furniture/joinery company, so we can have
  • A standard procedure to produce custom designs for each projects efficiently(ready for visualisation)
    Allow customer modifications on the products as much as possible, I mean, so we can have a lot more different kind of designs
    Preferably with schedule report function(how many/what sizes sheets of materials will be needed etc)
    Be able to quickly produce basic shop drawings to send out to factory.

I have done some research, and found quite a few plugins may fit below:
  • SketchData
    SketchThis
    EasySketch

I had a look into these but not much information given in terms of their feature, especially some of these plugins seems to provide a category of existing products from other manufactures, but I am wondering how much freedom can we have because we manufacture cabinets ourselves, so how can we work our own product line with the plugin?

I would second Rich's suggestion of Garry K's Cabinet Maker for kitchen and bath cabinets. If you are doing custom furniture such as seating and tables, there aren't any extensions that'll draw them for you but there are many extensions that will make them easier to draw.

By the way, your profile indicates you are using SketchUp Make. You should be using Pro for a number of reasons.

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.
